Ingredients and Method



  1. Mix all spices except salt in a small bowl. Season steaks on both sides with salt, then coat both sides with 5 tsp spice rub per steak (save any extras for next time!)
  2. Place steaks on a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet and chill uncovered 3 – 6 hrs.
  3. Remove from fridge and let sit about 1 hr to come to room temperature, this can help steaks cook quickly and evenly.
  4. Stovetop/oven method - Preheat oven to 400F. Heat oil in large oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steaks 2 mins or so per side to create a nice crust. Transfer skillet to heated oven; cook steaks until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 120 for medium-rare, about 5 minutes. Transfer to cutting board, let rest 10 minutes, slice ½” thick.
  5. Grilling method – preheat grill to 450F. Place the steaks on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the steaks over and continue to grill 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium (140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).
  6. **We swear by the "letting the steaks come to room temperature" concept, it truly does help them cook more evenly.
  7. **Letting the steak rest after cooking is crucial to the overal flavour, tenderness and juiciness, this lets the juices settle back into the steak
